Just thought you guys would want to know: I was watching Ellen today on NBC and I saw this guy doing cool science experments with Ellen. Well, they did one where they poured water into a cup and then put a flat piece of paper over the top and flipped it over.. it didnt leak out so I naturally thought oh its something to do with gravity holding the paper to the cup creating a seal so the water won't leak or he put geliten in the cup before the water but nope neither were true
He put in super absorbant polymer in the cup and it absorbed all the water.. I swear he said : "This is the stuff that they make diapers out of" about a million times [Kinda weird with my mom just sitting there on the couch with me]
And then Ellen took it out of the cup and started squishing it and was like ooh this is cool.
And I was thinking.. yea it is cool when it makes ur diaper swell up lol.
